God Thinking XXI - Know Your Enemy 6

"satan is lord over:       

pornography - gambling - terrorism - murder - rape - pedophilia - necromancy - debauchery - adultery - witchcraft - spirit guides - fraud - lying - cheating - stealing - hatred - prejudice.

He is sometimes subtle, sometimes cunning, sometimes disguised, sometimes blatantly open, but always against Jesus Christ and those who have the Spirit of God. 

he is not like you.  You have good sense and you understand boundaries.  satan has lost all the attributes of the heavenly and knows only those boundaries that God has installed.  

satan has been with you since the beginning and he is going to be with you until the end of the age.  He cannot be destroyed or maimed.  he has no feelings, empathy, sympathy or loyalty to anyone, not even those who serve him. 

he is thrilled at death, sickness, poverty, abortion, war, wickedness, terror, plague, famine, confusion or anything that could keep you and I from the knowledge of the truth. 

he seeks to corrupt the soul of every human being and relentlessly casts doubt on every truth of God that you tarry in believing. 
  • he hates the young and the old.
  • he seeks to make you sick.
  • he seeks to make you poor.
  • he seeks to make you fear.
  • he seeks to make you worry.
  • he seeks to make you give up.
  • he seeks to make you sin.
Anything that dishonors God, anything that distracts us from seeking the kingdom of God,
anything that keeps you from making a commitment of your life to Jesus Christ, that will he do.
Unlike you, satan has thousands of years of experience.  he wants your soul, but if he cannot have it, he wants who you love.  he is at battle right now, bidding for place in your life. 
  • If he cannot have your time, he wants your money.
  • If he cannot have your money, he wants your time.
  • If he cannot have your house, he wants your TV.
  • If he cannot have your TV, he wants your video game.
  • If he cannot have your video game, he wants your books, your music - anything that you have or do that is not protected by faith.
Anything that does not glorify God."
